When I found out Ann Schwab owns a house in Forest Ranch, I thought that was just outrageously hypocritical of her. Here she is passing ordinances in Chico that don’t apply to her posh pad overlooking the Chico Creek Canyon. Here she is talking about “social equity” – while maintaining a ginormous house that she keeps secret from her homeless minions.
Well, I sure hit a nerve. Here’s the bullshit letter she wrote to the ER in answer to my complaints:
“Letter writer misstates facts…” That’s Dave Little’s title – does he ever check ANYTHING out before he puts it in his “newspaper”?
Here’s her letter: While I don’t expect Juanita Sumner to agree with me on all issues before the City Council, I would appreciate that she state the facts accurately. In her letter to the editor Thursday, she states that my Chico State University salary is twice the median income and that I rent an apartment in Chico for residence requirements. The truth is that I get by on a modest income from my 11-month, three-quarter-time job and the condominium I own in Chico is where I live, day in and day out. Let’s get back to the real issues and stick to the truth. “
Yeah Ann, let’s stick to the truth. This letter is full of little half-truths. The “fact” I misstated there was, I thought she rented the apartment. She owns it. Well, excuse me, Little Miss One Percent. She never denies owning the house in Forest Ranch. The rest is simply misleading – she says I accuse her of making twice the median income, but never states her income. She says she works 11 months – a “three-quarter-time job”. Well, I checked into that – she’s making at least 80 grand a year, and that’s more than twice the median income, around $38,000. That’s “modest”? I guess, by some peoples’ standards.
She also gets a benefits package, with paid vacation, sick leave, etc, all paid for by college students, their parents, and us, the taxpayers:
I was disgusted, and still am, and now I got the real story. Sheesh! It just gets worse!
Ann does not live at the Forest Ranch house she co-owns with estranged husband Budd Schwab – according to the Butte County Court index, she’s been legally separated from Budd since 2000. I know, she still talks about him like he’s the best thing since tampons.
From Chico State’s 125th anniversary page, posted last spring, here: http://www.csuchico.edu/125/memory-lane/shared/memories/ann-schwab.shtml
“When I remember my days at Chico State, some of the happiest are those I spent with my future husband, Budd. I met Budd on the steps of the BMU cafeteria on what I thought was a happy coincidence. I had first seen Budd when he said hello to my friend Susan Whitney outside Butte Hall. They were in Chuck Price’s Introduction to Political Science class and Susan mentioned to Budd that her friend would really like to get to know him. A couple of weeks later, Budd and his friend Steve Billings, who were in the habit of watching who was going in and out of the BMU from the second story of the library, saw Susan and me going into the BMU (probably to have one of those wonderful grilled mushroom and cheese sandwiches!), and they conveniently ran into us on the steps coming out of the cafeteria. After going to a football game we had our first date at the Sicilian Café.”
This just written a year ago about a man she’s been legally separated from for over 10 years. A man who is living in a house she co-owns with his girlfriend and their child. Cut the crap Ann!
Why would she hide these facts if she’s not embarrassed? And should be. She’s living a fucking lie, right in front of everybody.
The friend who dumped this on me was trying to get me to lay off Ann. This person expected me to feel pity for this woman who foists her perverted values on a entire city of people. She demands “social equity” from employers, but she doesn’t demand much from a guy who made some pretty serious promises in front of a pulpit. What a mess this woman is. She doesn’t have the sense to stand up for her own marriage, but she wants to represent our city? I got one question – how’s she going to hide those horns Budd put on her?
